Happy Birthday Ruth

I so love the internet when you are in need of a quick card.  Yes, I googled and discovered this layout with a Stampin Up set that I have.   I found this layout by Sarah Klass.  I have changed the colours to a combo that I had both cardstock and inks.

Started with SU Kiwi Kiss then a layer of SU Pretty in Pink which I have used the same colour inkspot and stamped with the flower from the SU Good Friend set.  Next came a layer of SU Marina Mist, Very Vanilla.  More stamped flowers for the same stamp set.  This is where I think a Stamp-a-ma-jig would come in handy.  Lining up those circles is hard work (don't look too close).

So Happy Birthday to Ruth.....who just happens to be my Stampin Up supplier so I thought the card was appropriate.

Not the greatest photo but I wanted to share the thoughtful gift that my son gave me for Mother's Day.  I have been using an older style desk lamp.  This is a wonderful daylight/natural light LED lamp.  I can see that this will get many hours of use.  I love how it goes right across my work.

Wishing you all a terrific Tuesday.


  1. Gorgeous card Merry, I like the flowers and the colour combo, your lamp looks great.
